ANIMATION & GRAPHICS

http://www.web-animator.com/
This site allows you to make animated text.  You just choose what you want, fill it in and then right click to save the graphic you've made out of text and put it on your page.
 
 


http://www.mediabuilder.com/abm.html
This is another banner making site which is a bit different.  Just like the one above you just pick out the banner and fill it in.  Then you have to copy and paste the html they give you into your web page.

SOUND FILES
(midi files load faster than other sound files--most are keyboard songs)
If a menu shows up when the song is playing can save from menu,
or right click on the crescendo player and choose "save as"

To download Crescendo to play the midi files click here:

Country Music (ok I'm prejudiced!!)

and actually "find" things --don't forget the BOOLEAN OPERATORS kids when searching!!

Another Good site for CGI scripts -- Matt's Script Archives

COUNTERS/GUESTBOOKS
Remember that these actually are hosted by another server (most are free)
and so you must be on-line to see them work
In return for the service most will require an advertising banner be placed on your site.

PLACES TO HOST YOUR WEB SITE FOR FREE

Good Starting Base to Search for Free Web Hosts:
http://freewebspace.net/
This site lists many hosts and also has details about how much space you get,
advertising, how your address will be listed and a review of the site;
It also lists various free sites for businesses as well.
 

Most FREE sites place Advertising in a pop-up banner on your main page
(hey that's why they are free folks!)  You can sometimes pay a fee to have the banner removed.

The Most Popular Web Hosting Sites include:

http://www.geocities.com/

http://www.tripod.com/
(This is where I host my site -- I like the "extra help" they offer)

http://www.angelfire.com/

http://www.fsn.net/

http://www.cybercities.com/
